“If you spend any time with him, see the way he plays and what he brings to the team, it won't take long at all (to appreciate Iginla's intangibles).”

Sidney Crosby, center

“He's (an) unbelievable player, and I know he's a good guy. He has a lot of experience, and of course he (can) help the team to win.”

Evgeni Malkin, center

“Such a competitor. He can really shoot the puck. He doesn't need much time to get that release off.”

Chris Kunitz, left winger

“The first thing everyone looks at is 500-some goals and 1,000-and-whatever points. But the first thing when I think of Jarome is his character. He's a quality, quality human being. You know what you're going to get on the ice, but he's also a quality person.”

Brenden Morrow, left winger

“You've just added another big piece to what we're trying to do here. We're trying to win the Stanley Cup. It's our goal, and it sure looks like management is doing its part.”

Pascal Dupuis,right winger

“Ray's made a statement.”

Matt Cooke,left winger

“Before I went to bed, everyone was saying he was going to Boston. I got up in the middle of the night — don't know why — just wanted to see if the deal was done. It was a little surprising.”

Craig Adams,right winger
